Martell Sujihiki - For Sale
I started making this suji a long time ago, can't even remember when, getting sidetracked for some other project. I always wanted to see how the wood/horn combo was going to come out so I decided last week that I'd finally finish it. The koa is presentation grade and has a great amount of chatoyance with a rich brown color. I used black buffalo for the spacer along with a single black pin.
I took these pictures in all sorts of varyious (outside) lighting conditions trying to capture the koa's features/colors. What I have to show here is a decent enough representation but I assure you that it's movement (which can't be seen in pictures) will please much better in person. Seriously though, it really depends on the actual lighting conditions you have as to what you'll see and you can expect to always see something different in this handle.
The blade is ground to be as stiff as possible while still being very thin with a slight convexity.
I make my sujihiki profile to be used both on and off the board.

Whoa! Congrats in advance to whoever purchases this!
If I did not already have three 300 mm carbon sujis this one would already be spoken for. What a beauty!
I'm glad to hear someone with your experience likes the look of it. Thanks for chiming in David.
Gorgeous stripes on the koa. Love the K-tip styling as well
Dave's got his groove on. Dave
not that I'd need another suji (or a suji at all) but, Dave, will this match my rehandled Hiromoto AS pair (Santoku and 240 gyuto)?
